A street on the north side of Okotoks was closed following a natural gas leak this evening.

ATCO crews responded to the leak in the Wolf Crescent area just before 5 p.m.

A section of Banister Gate was closed by Municipal Enforcement while ATCO and Okotoks Fire & Rescue responded.

According to one officer at the scene, personnel heard gas escaping from the line when they first arrived.

The leak has since been contained, and the road has been reopened.
